About Project

The Heath Robinson Young Art Academy is an art club for young people who are serious about improving their art skills and widening their knowledge and experience of different art, artists and techniques.
The club is term-time and weekly, after school and will teach art in a formal and structured way, which is designed to expand into areas of art technique, theory and history, that schools do not currently have the capacity to cover, whilst also augmenting school curriculum. The age range is roughly from 7-16yrs, split into junior academy 7-10 and senior academy 10-16. We have a wide age range in each group as we feel it is important for children to learn from their peers and older or more able children too, especially since Heath Robinson himself learnt from his brothers’ and father’s practice and vice versa. The direction of these lessons is at least partially driven by the students themselves as their confidence, abilities and interests develop.
All lessons are designed, planned and lead by a team of professional artists and art educators. We also recruit working professional artists to run defined projects, which is built into the structure of the learning program. These can be a single lesson or over a number of weeks, dependent on the needs of the projects. This gives the children unparalleled access to working artists from a variety of different practices, who will present projects based on their preferred working practices.
As part of this club, we have built in a series of formal education qualifications in the form of the Arts Awards. The children can choose if they want to enter for these awards or simply attend the Academy for fun. The Learning Officer is a qualified Arts Award advisor and the Museum is a registered Arts Award Centre, which can offer up to level 3 qualifications, which are worth UCAS points to help children gain entry to Higher education.
